Last night Drake went on Instagram Live with Goldin Auctions founder Ken Goldin to break open a bunch of expensive boxes of basketball cards.
One of the boxes was 1986 Fleer basketball. Drake was hunting for the holy grail Michael Jordan rookie card in this box and on the first pack, he pulled one.
Here’s the video of Drake pulling the MJ on the first pack below. He and Ken Goldin’s reactions are awesome.

Drake would go on to pull five more Michael Jordans—two regular rookie cards and three rookie sticker cards, thus bringing his total to six total MJs.

Drake likely procured the boxes of 1986 Fleer from Goldin. Drake and Goldin also opened packs of 2003-2004 Topps Chrome Basketball (known for having the Lebron James rookie) and a couple of boxes of Panini Flawless Basketball.
Drake just pulled a Michael Jordan RC and doesn’t really care because the value of the card is about how much he makes every couple of minutes. pic.twitter.com/gZ8ikCeUEs

It’s worth noting a single box of Panini Flawless goes for about $46,000.
Drake actually cracked open several Panini Flawless boxes two weeks ago as well.
Total Value of the Michael Jordan Rookie Cards
It wouldn’t be crazy to think the total value of Drake’s Micahel Jordan rookie cards is over $1 million dollars.
The cards would have to grade well at a PSA 9 or 10. A PSA 10 is perfect, which is hard to get but Drake has a case for getting a perfect card grade thanks to opening it fresh out of a pack that’s been protected for over 35 years.
I’m sure he will get those cards graded ASAP too, especially since PSA tweeted about the event.
That didn’t take long!!!
The first pack @Drake opened in the 1986 Fleer box produced the legendary Michael Jordan RC. 🔥🐐

If Drake could also keep opening insanely expensive sports cards too that would be greatly appreciated.
Regardless of a major pull or not, the anticipation makes for great content.
